I'm trying to delete my bookmarks and start again, but everytime I do so that they get recreated from somewhere. Have emptied the bookmakbackup folder. i use xmarks to backup my bookmarks, but this is disabled. Help please!! Once I can do this on Win7 on this computer then I can also do it on Win8 on this machine and Win 7 on my desktop.

How are you deleting your bookmarks?

If all bookmark backups are gone [along with the places.sqlite file], Firefox will look to the default bookmarks.html file [upon startup] in the Profile folder which contains the few default bookmarks that come with Firefox.

All bookmark backups were deleted, but I was still getting my old corrupted list back again. Ended up deleting Firefox and re-installing from scratch

Next time, create a new profile. It should be blank.

Also, create backups for such things. I keep 40 backups, and I was glad.

These can't get your data back, but will help in the future.

These add-ons can be a great help by backing up and restoring Firefox

FEBE (Firefox Environment Backup Extension) {web link} FEBE allows you to quickly and easily backup your Firefox extensions, history, passwords, and more. In fact, it goes beyond just backing up -- It will actually rebuild your saved files individually into installable .xpi files. It will also make backup of files that you choose.
